It varies... some are ridiculously priced, but there are some gems..
Eg, the 4k version of T2 is 10.64 S$ right now.
Please post instead of sending a pm, so more can learn.

Took them this long and they dont even have a category for bluray movies. Have to search "bluray" or "bluray movie" and see all the other irrelevant stuff like hardware, storage and blank discs sigh

I just placed an order through amazon.com as usual... just that I don't like the price anymore now that we have to pay for shipping. Delivery timeline also seems kind of ridiculous (1-2 months), but will wait and see how long it actually takes.

Anyone successfully transitioned to amazon.sg, or have any better site to recommend?

Seems like able to filter by disc formats (eg 4k/Blu-ray/dvd) albeit over a few steps esp if using the app.
If accessing via Amazon.sg website, select ‘Music, DVD & Blu-ray’->’DVD & Blu-ray’ from main menu then choose the format you are interested in from the left-hand side menu bar.
A bit more troublesome via the app...1st need to select ‘Shop by Category’->’DVD’ from main menu. Then scroll to bottom of the page to select either Movies or TV. When in the main page for Movies/TV, click on ‘Filter’ (near top right-hand side of page) to select the format you want.
Need an extra step on android devices....on main page of Movies/TV, need to scroll down to bottom of page & select ‘See All Movies’ before able to see the ‘Filter’ option for selecting format.
Most 4K discs seems to ship from Amazon US so will need to be Amazon SG Prime member and have min S$60 spend on international items to qualify for free shipping. Otherwise will still need to pay for shipping for each item.

Cheap doesn’t mean good quality in this case. Read the review of the so-called T2 in 4K. The PQ is like Blu-ray (1080p) but slapped with a 4K logo. Probably explain it is so cheap.
